Board of Director since 2006.
2020-2023 Board of Director Candidate
I come from Deaf and Hearing family that exposed me to understand the bridging between Deaf and Hearing communities. Hence me becoming Deaf Interpreter which expose me more about how system works within community such as advocacy, awareness of Deaf and Hard of Hearing and other issues.
Being a Board Member in the last 4 years (1 year as co-opt and 3 years as Board of Director) gave me valuable insight and understanding where Deaf Australia has been leading and wishes to continue doing it so for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.
I also have a fair understanding the system such as Department of Social Services, National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), Disability Discrimination Act and the Human Rights Equal Opportunity (Victorian)
In the last few years we have been involved with NDIS changes and awareness which led disabilities getting better packages.
I aim to advocate for Members of Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities.
